Contrasting aspects. Venus square Saturn means we feel tested and need to focus on perfecting (Virgo) ourselves, while Sun conjunct Mercury means it’s a bright and creative day.
3:46am – Moon (Taurus) trine Mars (Virgo) Burst of physical energy, we feel like spending money to get ahead.
5:54am – Venus (Virgo) square Saturn (Sagittarius) Once again it’s the Virgo to Sagittarius square which asks us to be satisfied with what we have, don’t ask for more (Sagittarius) until you have digested (Virgo) what you already have.
Venus square Saturn is a time of testing (the applying square). The tendency is to isolate yourself, feeling like you aren’t good enough, not pretty enough, lack social grace (Venus qualities), and consequently behave cold, precise, unyielding and overly structured (Saturn qualities). It’s generally not a good time for social gatherings as people are feeling critical and judgmental and are not as emotionally available for one another as usual.
Virgo asks us to eliminate feelings (Venus) that we no longer need. This is especially significant now that Venus is at the end of her death cycle. So you really need to let go of feelings (Venus) that are dysfunctional or negative, things that are holding you back. The universe is giving us a great opportunity to let go, purge old, worn out feelings in order to make way for something new once Venus enters Libra this Saturday 10/14.
Focus on perfecting (Virgo) yourself. Taking all of that energy of Saturn and turning it inward will yield positive results while directing it outward leads to wounded relationships. And predictably this aspect is bad for relationships, feeling more restricted than usual and prone to criticizing your partner.
Not a good day to sign agreements nor it is a good day for business, folks do not feel like spending money, unless it’s for something like health products. Maybe the health food stores do well on an aspect like this one.
6:45am – Moon (Taurus) trine Venus (Virgo). Skillful (Virgo) use of personal resources (Taurus). Void of Course begins, continues until this evening. Slow Sunday, time to be steadfast and complete unfinished projects.
1:54pm – Sun conjunct Mercury (Libra) This aspect is always a good one. It brings the light of the Sun into the conscious mind. We are more talkative, intelligent, opinionated, and curious. Good day for communication. Our creative energy (Sun) is very active and changeable (Mercury), we can move easily from one thing to the next without much hesitation. Able to do two things (Gemini) at once. Good for juggling. Folks have lots of bright ideas and the inner child within us comes out to play.
In Libra, this aspect is a perfect time for a social gathering, quite the opposite of the previous aspect. With this aspect, we need to talk to others, share ideas, develop relationships and partnerships. The not-self (Libra) requires our full conscious (Mercury) attention. We are more eloquent and desire to persuade others to go along with our ideas.
A good aspect for business transactions, once again, a contrast. People want to spend money to beautify (Libra) their life, cloths, cosmetics, romance, going on a date, etc. Though both aspect encourage purchase of health products. Listening to music or putting yourself in beautiful surroundings today will do more good than usual. A good day to go to the beach or take a hike with a partner. Also, any creative (Sun) effort using your hands (Mercury) will also be a good outlet.
6:44pm – Moon enters Gemini. Moon enters it’s death cycle in Gemini. Brief attractions. Emotions are mercurial, move from one thing to the next quickly. Time to catch up on missed connections, complete unfinished projects. More mentally active, good at solving puzzles, a bit restless and in need of stimulation.
An intense day with Sun and Mercury square Pluto. Breakdowns in machinery and communications. Note a good time to start a journey. Strong driving caution. Powerful forces at work in society to reshape our lives. Secrets may be revealed, high potential for conflict. Reform is on everyone’s mind. You’ll need to be diplomatic (Libra) today to avoid problems and fulfill your need to regenerate. You can get a lot accomplished with this energy. If you stay focused, it can be a fantastic day when you feel more confident and powerful internally than you have felt in a long time.
Catalonia intends to succeed from Spain today and Trump is promising a big event today. That isn’t surprising considering these aspects, which have a way of activating other, major aspects happening concurrently.
5:24am – Mercury (Libra) square Pluto (Capricorn) Early in the day especially, communication (Mercury) is inhibited. Shocking news, but there seems to be much under the surface, a lot that’s not being said. A desire to know what’s happening behind closed doors. Secrets are revealed. A greater awareness of one’s own personal power pervades and folks are more testy. People not listening well to one another. Obsessive thinking, compulsive thoughts and ideas inhibit clear communication. People acting on impulse rather than a well thought out plan, prone to greediness. Someone trying to coerce you, or vice versa. Temptation to use underhanded tactics.
A day when we seem to loose control and must resist being pulled under so we work harder to stay on top of things. Psychological issues and associated conflicts arise. But focusing inward gives you the energy to accomplish a lot and purge weaker elements of your character in the process. Hidden focres in society and in your own personality may emerge. You could be surprised yourself with what is revealed and with what you say today. Things that withstand the tests you face today will be more important to you and you’ll be more grateful for them, this includes relationships.
Good time for mental focus, introspection and for the study of deep, esoteric subjects. You’ll want to get to the bottom of any issue. More aware of what others are thinking. Generally not a good day to make important decisions or begin projects, you’ll find that you lack sufficient resources. Cars and machinery may experience breakdowns. This brings on the need to repair, rebuild, regenerate (Pluto) on many levels. Mechanics probably busier than usual today. Folks more prone to compulsive, even defiant (Pluto) behavior while driving (Mercury), so drive with extra care today, more defensive than usual.
2:34pm – Moon (Gemini) square Neptune (Pisces) Emotions deflate, feeling dissatisfied and not sure why, easy to fool yourself, desire sanctuary.
5:07pm – Sun (Libra) square Pluto (Capricorn) A crisis to merge your creative (Sun) efforts with the collective (Pluto). If what you are doing is for the good of everyone concerned, then this aspect and the previous do not bring as much of a challenge, instead you get a burst of energy to keep you focused and help you through your day. Regardless of that, you may encounter opposition to your plans. All projects in the works face a test of accountability. Financing seems hard to obtain. Forces that oppose you today are meant to make you stronger and teach you to appreciate yourself more. With this aspect, you have to work hard to get what you want, but once you obtain it, it’s yours along with a sense of achievement.
The diminutive Sun in Libra faces a critical test today. Secrets may be revealed in relationships (Libra). Jealousy may arise. Pluto squares have a way of severing bonds, which means relationships are under stress to reform or die. Desire to coerce is strong with this aspect as well.
The increased energy and stamina these aspects bring give you lots of energy to reform you life, make some necessary changes, get a lot of work done. Time to focus, let go of whatever isn’t working in order to claim your true power. You may find yourself isolated in your struggle for fulfillment.
As with the previous, breakdowns in cars and machinery are more likely today. Whatever needs fixing will let you know today. Overall a bad day for the banking industry and stock market and for authority figures in general. We could see some event like a market correction or just bad economic news.
11:08pm – Moon (Gemini) trine Sun (Libra) A creative and romantic aspect late in the evening, good time to share your feelings.
Moon (Gemini) gives us a couple of tough aspects in the morning. But the energy calms down in the evening when Moon enters Cancer. Jupiter enters Scorpio today.
1:04am – Moon (Gemini) trine Mercury (Libra) Good communication
6:20am – Jupiter enters Scorpio. Until 11/8/2018. About 13 months. Jupiter enters the last step in the 12 step process that begins with Sagittarius. Jupiter expands while Scorpio says “I penetrate”. The need to dig deep makes expansion hard, so the energy of Jupiter dissipates, as if it’s in Pisces. So, in Scorpio, Jupiter drops the unnecessary or unprofitable expansion, pulls idle irons from the fire, and focuses on what’s really important, like making money (Scorpio). It’s an ambitious time as people get more in touch with their life goals. Jupiter should also bring some light into the dark, Scorpio places and bring justice (Sagittarius) regarding things done in the dark. Look for more publishing and broadcasting (Jupiter) of archaeological digs, what they find could be a revelation for some.
Banks and financial institutions, like insurance companies, along with the different forms of international currency are all ruled by Pluto and Scorpio. With Jupiter going through Scorpio look for a lot of adaptation and expansion of these things. The new system of currencies to replace the US petro dollar is now in full swing as nation after nation is now able to trade for oil and other goods in different denominations.
We’ll see expansion (Jupiter) of the mystical or occult (Scorpio), people more interested in psychic abilities. Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter, says “I perceive”, so Jupiter in Scorpio perceives the deepest, most profound things, things that instigate a death-rebirth (Scorpio) process within you. Spiritual healing abilities (Scorpio) also get a boost during this time as more people get in touch with their innate healing abilities.
7:47am – Moon (Gemini) square Mars (Virgo) Intellectual and quarrelsome, arguing over the details. Poor digestion. Eat a warm meal.
8:41am – Moon (Gemini) opposition Saturn (Sagittarius) Emotions fixed and stubborn, easily disappointed. Eat a warm meal.
1:12pm – Moon (Gemini) square Venus (Virgo). Disconnect between feelings and emotions. Caught up in useless details.
3:24pm – Moon (Gemini) sextile Uranus (Aires). Spontaneous, intelligent and looking for new ways to express yourself. Void of Course begins.
8:38pm – Moon enters Cancer. Begins a new cycle in Cancer. We are more passive, sensitive and you may desire to crawl into your shell for the next couple of days. We are more instinctual and prefer spending time at home.
8:51pm – Moon (Cancer) trine Jupiter (Scorpio) The Cancer to Scorpio trine enables you to share your feelings with your partner, this aspect especially so. Very sensitive to any disruption in the home. Collective resources available in the home.
A day for efficiency and hard work with Mars square Saturn.
6:37am – Mars (Virgo) square Saturn (Sagittarius) The last of the recent Virgo to Sagittarius squares arrives. We should be getting really good at this by now, learning to be satisfied with what you have instead of being restless and always wanting to move on to something more. There is no better square to teach us this lesson because Saturn is efficient and today you are good at doing the best with what you have. The mutable squares require maturity to move beyond our fixed ways and adapt to changing circumstances and this square gives us that.
Today the ego (Mars) feels confined to a narrow band (Saturn) of expression, which is either frustrating or fulfilling depending on your attitude. Saturn-Mars combinations have a way of slowing you down and forcing you to look at yourself. Saturn slows down Mars, so you will want to do things slowly. You may not feel as available for others as usual because you have your own work to do. Not interested in superficiality, distractions seem more bothersome than usual. Working by yourself there is no problem, this aspect is great for putting in a sustained effort and seeing a project through to completion. Mars-Saturn aspects make us steadfast but unwilling to compromise. When working with others, ego conflicts can arise as everyone wants their space and is struggling to assert themselves. If you know your limitations (Saturn), then it’s a productive day.
Authority figures seem to weigh us down today, they seem more oppressive than usual. You need to find your identity (Mars) apart from them. Generally this aspect makes us feel inhibited, hard to move forward. The idea is to incorporate structure (Saturn) into your ego (Mars), and that can be a frustrating but a necessary job that we all must do. Not a day to start new project as you will lack the energy in the long run.
Today we face a crisis of fulfillment to see if the current Mars-Saturn cycle has paid off, so everyone is yearning for success today. We began the current Mars-Saturn cycle on 8/24/16 when both planets we at 9d Sagittarius. That began a new cycle of self (Mars) mastery (Saturn), an important cycle that we all like to pay special attention to. We reached a culmination in this cycle on 5/28/17 when Mars was at 25d Gemini. That was a critical moment to see if we were achieving the personal success that we want in life. You may want to check my weekly reports for 5/21 – 5/28 and 5/28 – 6/4 to get a better idea because I really talked a lot about the Mars-Saturn cycle in those two videos. We always experience a struggle for fulfillment at the squares and oppositions.
4:46pm – Moon (Cancer) trine Neptune (Pisces) Warm and tender, heightened sensitivity, more psychic and vulnerable. Time to nurture yourself and others, stay in touch with spirit.
The Last Quarter Moon early in the morning brings a struggle for fulfillment, but Mercury sextile Saturn this evening makes most of the day productive, good for planning, seeing the big picture, willing to work towards long range goals and best of all, able to adapt and change your mind, learn something new.
1:13am – Moon (Cancer) opposition Pluto (Capricorn) Strong mood swings, intense feelings, like jealousy and passion. Be good to your mother.
5:25am – Moon (Cancer) square Sun (Libra). The monthly test to see if your plans worked out the way you wanted. The Last Quarter Moon brings a struggle for fulfillment. A critical moment when we either feel satisfaction or regret. Emotional insecurities (Cancer) inhibit (square) relationships (Libra). Feel the need to share your feelings with your partner.
10:33am – Moon (Cancer) square Mercury (Libra) Preoccupations with the past and subconscious impulses interfere with clear communication.
12:52pm – Moon (Cancer) sextile Mars (Virgo) Burst of physical energy for improvements in the home.
6:10pm – Moon (Cancer) square Uranus (Aires) Preoccupation with the unusual, more aware of what you are not getting on a social level. Disruptions in the home.
8:03pm – Mercury (Libra) sextile Saturn (Sagittarius) A good aspect for planning, especially long range planning. Saturn slows down the mind so you can make responsible decisions, and Sagittarius gives vision and desire to expand. A willingness to put off present satisfaction for future gain. A good grip on reality and most importantly, ability to correct yourself and make it look like that’s what you intended all along. The Libra to Sagittarius sextile is very adaptable, willing to look at the big picture. The tendency for Sagittarius to overlook the details is alleviated by Saturn that loves to go over the details. Overall, it makes for a steady, sure mind, enables good mental focus and willingness to work until a job is completed. Relations with authority figures is good. A good time to make a decision, come to an agreement with someone, sign a contract. Both sides can better see potential problems and fix them before they get worse. So if you’ve been struggling for fulfillment this week, don’t loose hope, Thursday brings clear thinking and a better idea of what’s important to you. Good time to catch up on mundane affairs and paperwork. Good aspect for meetings of professional or political organizations and community meetings, like town hall meetings.
8:59pm – Moon (Cancer) sextile Venus (Virgo). Feelings and emotions in harmony, good digestion (Virgo), eat a healthy meal, in general a good time to nurture (Cancer) yourself. Void of Course begins. The last aspect for Venus in Virgo, so it’s Void of Course for Venus until Saturday morning.
11:41pm – Moon enters Leo. We are more outgoing, romantic and interested in our hobbies for the next couple of days. A creative time, good for spending time with your children.
Just one Moon aspect today. Moon in Leo makes it a creative and romantic day.
12:43am – Moon (Leo) square Jupiter (Scorpio) Emotions expand, overindulgent, passionate.
Venus begins a new cycle as it enters Libra today. Mercury opposition Uranus makes Saturday evening exciting, a good evening to meet someone interesting and enlightening, do something different. Be open to surprises and a sudden change of plans.
3:11am – Venus enters Libra. Until 11/8. That’s 3 ½ weeks. Before I go on I just want to point out one interesting synchronicity. Mars entered Libra on Friday, Nov 13, 2015. Venus enters Libra only 3 hours after another Friday the 13th. When Mars entered Libra there was a major terrorist false flag event in Paris, France.
Venus rules Libra and begins a new cycle when it enters this sign. We are receptive (Venus) to relationships and partnerships (Libra) during this time, they are more important to us and help us define who we are (Aires-Libra axis). We are also more receptive to all things Libra, beautiful people and things, luxury items, artwork and music.
1:34pm – Moon (Leo) sextile Sun (Libra). Very romantic. The last sextile before the New Moon, always a wonderful time to share with friends and loved ones. Makes for a pleasant Saturday afternoon.
4:11pm – Moon (Leo) trine Saturn (Sagittarius). Inspirational and harmonious, positive attitude, good for planning or attending a social gathering.
Mercury opposition Uranus makes the morning electric and interesting. Looking for a change of pace, desire to liberate yourself from the mundane and maybe meet someone interesting.
12:51am – Mercury (Libra) opposition Uranus (Aires) Always an exciting aspect, makes for interesting conversations and one to one encounters. Mentally stimulating, lots of new ideas, new ways of looking at an old problem, desire to break from from limited thinking. Look for a surprise, a sudden change of plans, be flexible and ready to roll with whatever comes your way Saturday evening to Sunday morning. A sudden flash of insight or exciting idea may come to mind. Very open-minded, mentally liberated to the point where you say whatever you want to say, no inhibition on speaking. Overcome traditional modes of expression. You’ll need to be able to back-up what you say (Mercury), the enlightening quality of Uranus has a tendency to cause us to forget practical reality and we can get a bit eccentric. Could bring up some nervous tension, there is just more stimulation for the mind now. Good time to do something creative with your hands. Aspect brings about interesting encounters, someone who could change your life or bring a new enlightened perspective, help you to see things in a new way. Also could produce confrontations and erratic driving habits. Be careful while driving.
4:19am – Moon enters Virgo. We are more fastidious and interested in intellectual pursuits for the next couple of days. Time to focus on health and diet.
6:14am – Moon (Virgo) sextile Jupiter (Scorpio). Now with Jupiter in Scorpio, we’ll be looking at this aspect each month as an opportunity for healing. Opens the heart to deep feelings of commitment and helps develop the emotional security necessary for the death-rebirth process.
That’s all for this weeks’ aspects.
Let’s talk about the Las Vegas shooting.
Before going further, I must say that I believe that this mass shooting was another false flag event, just like 911, not a hoax, people really died, but it was a false flag event carried out by regressive elements in the US government, not by a lone gunman. There are numerous reports of more than one shooter.
I have a theory based on an astrological synchronicity that tells me that this shooting was a last desperate and defiant act by a regressive element in the US government, I call them the dark cabal, the same group that did 911.
First, Saturn square Neptune transit. This is significant because it’s from Saturn in the last degrees of Sagittarius, where Saturn is at the point where it needs to purge all the old elements of authority in order to make way for the new before starting a new phase starting in Capricorn. I think the dark cabal are the ones who are getting purged.
I’ve been using the analogy of the Tower of Babel to describe Saturn in Sagittarius. Saturn restructures every sign it enters. In Sagittarius, that restructuring process means building a massive tower for all things Sagittarius, especially the news media to broadcast their message, hence the term Tower of Babel. But in the last step of the 12 step process, Saturn must tear down the tower, get ride of the old to make way for the new phase. So the Tower of Babel must fall, and at this square, those still remaining in the tower perform their last ritual of sacrifice (square to Neptune). Though they sacrificed innocent people, really they are sacrificing themselves and all they have stood for in life (Saturn) for a belief system that they cannot seem to let go off. Their actions will cause them to be revealed so they can be purged. So based on this transit, I interpret this shooting event as the dark cabal acting out of desperation.
When considering the broader picture, beyond the death and tragedy on the ground in Vegas, this could very well mean that the people who did this, the dark cabal, are on the verge of loosing power. Considering the long term implications, this event, despite the tragedy, may foreshadow something positive, like the dark cabal getting purged from the reigns of power and authority in this country. A fundamental shift is now occurring deep within the tectonic plates of the US government. The Tower of Babel is falling. We could see some amazing endings in politics and the news media in the coming days.
Second, Jupiter square Pluto. A very ambitous transit. Brings out excessive and obsessive behavior. This aspect has been closed associated with the Antifa movement all year long, now we see political fanatacism of a much worse kind at the transit. This transit greatly amplified the previous by adding jealousy and vindictiveness (Pluto).
The two transits together created this ambitious, (Jupiter square Pluto) desperate and sacrificial (Saturn square Neptune) moment. Please note the following interesting synchronicity. Let’s take a look at the chart for the City of Las Vegas for 10/1. We see that Las Vegas has Uranus at 28d Capricorn, right on top of the USA’s natal Pluto. So they were getting Jupiter square Uranus. There is a common fate for people with planets at the same degree and that fate is often tested at the squares, we’ve seen this before. So this synchronicity tells us that what happened in Las Vegas was how the Jupiter square Pluto manifested for the USA. And that tells us this event was caused by political (Jupiter) fantasicm (Pluto).
And I read further into this and say that what Las Vegas represents (Sin City) and how that effects the reputation (Capricorn) of the USA is in a state of transformation.
Also Chiron square Pluto. This transit has coincided with pain (Chiron) and death (Pluto). Chiron brings events where you get caught up in collective karma, and that is certainly the case here.
I sense a deep reform in the USA is underway. This shooting event foreshadows big falls in politics and the news media here in the USA. Maybe we should take Trump’s recent comment about this being the calm before the storm seriously. And the aspects we’re having this week show a lot of struggle related to authority figures. Sun, Mercury square Pluto (Capricorn) and Mars square Saturn. As we go through our own struggle for fulfillment this week, authority figures face a much tougher struggle. All of these Saturn and Capricorn squares will make it a serious week ahead.
And with Jupiter entering Scorpio, politics (Jupiter) will now take on the qualities of Scorpio. Passionate and fanatical, relentless, digging deep to get to the heart of the matter. Expansion (Jupiter) of police (Scorpio) activity. Honestly, things could get really interesting this week.
That’s all for weekly astrology notes. Thanks for viewing and thanks for liking my video and please subscribe if you haven’t already. Many blessings and have a great day.
